The corpse of an allegedly murdered person has been found lying bare at a bush within the premises of the Achimota Senior High school in Accra.

This is the fifth body found at the school premises, after four others were found few months ago.

The latest corpse was however seen last Friday by some scrap dealers near the Pure Fire Miracles Ministries International Church close to the main campus.

Residents say the body has been lying in the bush for weeks, adding that efforts to get the police to retrieve the body have proven futile.

The situation is having debilitating effects on the health of staff and students, as the body, which is being covered with grasses and tree leaves is producing an odour.

Headmistress of the school, Beatrice Addo has told Accra-based Joy FM that “the body is in a terrible state of decomposition”.

“We are scared because we are taking care of children," she added.

She said officials of the Accra Metropolitan assembly are proposing to bury the corpse on the school’s land due to its decomposing nature.
